Hi Sammy just some beige linen trousers and a floral top ! nothing special I'm not sure if I've got it all wrong as I was on contibution based ESA and it ran out in July ! (you only get it for a year) so if i'm in the work group do I get my benefit back or not or is it just in the support group ? as my husband is earning to much for me to get my benefit it's a joke we are really struggling with no money for me !! do you no if right or not ? feelin very tired and flat now and keep crying its all too much. They asked about my depression and diabetes and mobillity ( walking, lifting ect as I have costocochondritit as well I have really bad rib pain) and about the physio I've had and hydo thearaphy.

I'm in the same position as you re husband working. When my benefit stops there is no way that we will be able to manage financially.all this after i worked for 30 years 16 of those with fibro before i lost my job because of it and ended up having a breakdown.

Please let me know how you go on re this.

Hello goodfellow,

I'm very down and confused about the whole thing i had a later two days ago's saying they are paying me back pay ! which is a bonus I didn't exspect , but the letter is so confusing I still don't know if I am getting benefit or not in one paragraph it say I'm not because i've had max 356 days then further down it says...I will get £94.25 ??? I will keep you updated, so cross today as the DWP is closed as they are on STRIKE !!! we can't do anything to ptotest the unfairness to us !!!

don't think that's the last of the fight by far I'am feeling very feflatted now as I not sure if I am going to get my benefit back without another appeal !!

YYaaaayyyyyy, go you lossy. Had a similar result about 6 weeks ago, totally stunned i can tell you. I was all prepared to appeal and didn't open the letter for 2 days lol.

See what happens when they mess about with the benefit next year, seems a waste of time sending people for medicals etc when they are changing the whole damn system...for the worse no doubt, despite what they say!!!

Am so pleased for you, well done

hugs and take care
